Elias had a bit of a rough night. I think for Nathan and I, it was proof that human brains do not work as well when they are tired. We were wondering at 3:30, 4:30, 5:30, and on why he could not get back to sleep. Poor little guy. Then when Nathan was getting him dressed for church, we discovered that he cut a tooth overnight….with no tylenol to help out either. Elias now has three teeth! (Actually the third one is not quite all the way in yet….but about half of it has poked through) Why did this not occur to us during the night? We had just commented yesterday evening how it was looking really white underneath his gum there. Oh well.
On the plus side, we had a very long, leisurely morning getting ready for church. We still managed to be a little late, though, because Elias fell asleep right as we were ready to go and we found that we just had to spend a few moments staring at our sleeping child in wonder. What a special boy he is.
